Orange-Poppy Seed Pancakes

I woke up so incredibly happy today! Maybe due to the fact that I'd been sick for almost a whole week and could not do anything besides lying in bed. It was awful, let me tell ya!
But today, Today is a new day and I am bursting with energy! So it was a no brainer to make some pancakes for breakfast! The sun is shining, I am no longer (at least not as much) sick anymore, it's Friday so what more could I ask for? :)
I was thinking about what kinda pancakes I should make... The banana, oatmeal and buttermilk ones sounded kind of boring. But then I thought, let's throw in some poppy seeds! And make the pancakes even more spectacular than they already are with a few squeezes of fresh orange juice! Ahhh, totally amazing. Totally, utterly, completely amazing :) I ate them with some maple syrup, slices of orange and some plain greek yogurt. If I haven't already convinced you to make some, like right now, then I'll tell you, they're made with whole wheat flour and just a tiny bit of raw cane sugar. Oh and they're dairy-free! Soooo they're not only fabulous in the taste, but they're even good for you! Yay for pancakes!

Orange-Poppy Seed Pancakes
makes for 2 or 3

1 cup rice milk - or any type of milk of your choice
1/2 cup whole wheat flour
1/2 cup + 4 Tbsp all-purpose flour
1 egg
3/4 tsp baking soda
2 Tbsp raw cane sugar
2 Tbsp poppy seeds
1/2 orange - the juice and zest of it
1 Tbsp oil

In a bowl, sift together the flours, baking soda, sugar, poppy seeds and the orange zest.
In another bowl mix together the milk and the egg. Add in the orange juice and the oil. Fold in the dry ingredients, mix well. 
Heat a griddle or a pan. Pour the batter over the pan, about 2-3 tablespoons a time. Cook on one side until you can see small holes forming on top. Flip with a spatula and cook for another minute or 2. Do the same with the rest of the batter.
Serve with maple syrup or greek yogurt or some fresh orange. Enjoy! :)

Brown Butter Walnut Cake with Chocolate-Mocha Ganache

This post is yet again an example of how I procrastinate when it comes to studying or making a presentation. Whichever. This is going to be a lovely tale about a "magnifique" cake.  I got my inspiration to make that brown butter walnut sensation from  Procrastobaker . It is seriously one of the best things I've ever baked. I do not think the photos do justice when I tried to catch how breath-taking the cake is once a bite lands in your mouth... It is crispy on the outside and so juicy in the inside and the chocolate-mocha ganache goes just perfectly well with it. I changed the original recipe a bit, as I worked with walnuts and I added a layer of chocolate cream inside the cake, as well. Also, it is important to add that it is best one day after it was made. While it chilled in the fridge. Oh my... It was such a hit! Definitely going to make it again...and again... :) But I won't keep you on your toes and fill you in with this lovely recipe!

Hungarian Kakaós Csiga (Chocolate Rolls)

Frankly, I missed baking so much! Even though I needed one baking-free month to lose all the weight I gained due to the excessive baking mania I got over this summer I just cannot stop it! So I decided that I don't have to give up this love of mine but I do have to figure out something that will not leave me end up gaining weight again. What to do, what to do...Bake only in the weekends! And probably I should get a grip and not stuff my face until I can't move...Which didn't really happen today. I ate like 6 of these lovely chocolate rolls...I guess, no dinner for Csilla tonight :P These rolls are from a traditional Hungarian pastry recipe. I called my Grandma to ask for the recipe and as it always happens with Grandma recipes she did not know the measurements...I don't know if it's only with my grandmas but they always work with their eyes so they usually have no idea how much grams I need from this or that... So I turned to an ancient Hungarian cookbook and that
